Seen the VAR in action in a couple of Serie A games with mixed success

seems inevitable that it will make its way into the Premier League eventually

what do you think?

Dunno. Is he the pacey, snidey forward we've been desperate for?

I don't know if you've spotted it but there's a blatant push in the back after the penalty is missed, should be another penalty.

I prefer how they do it in Australian Rugby League. The on-pitch referee doesn't look at footage.

The referee makes a call but 'hands it upstairs' to either confirm or override the decision.

The remit of the video referee is to be able to clearly show the referee is right or wrong, otherwise when it's still a grey area the original decision stands.

I like this because it prevents the main referee totally jibbing on making a decision.

Seems like there's still a lot of opportunity for errors and controversy for example if the official doesn't stop play to look when needed

On the flip side there is this...



One of the interesting things about this, and something I always thought was potentially one of the main benefits of replays is that it levels the playing field against the bigger clubs. Juventus again conceding a penalty here.

How many times have we seen the bigger clubs getting the decision (or the refereeing bottling a big call) probably because on some level they know they only get relegated to the Championship to referee for a couple of games or get pundits complaining about them in columns if they give a decision that leads to the bigger club not winning a game. IF they bottle it, or they give a penalty to the bigger club in the 90th minute there might be a brief mention on MOTD (maybe they murmur something about there was "contact") but everyone goes about their business.

I'd give them a chance to work out the kinks. Would much prefer a man upstairs though, not a fan at all of the referee running off the pitch.

it does seem likely to eliminate the number of times an official is surrounded and harassed by players prior to making a difficult decision

Sending them off would solve that problem too.

can't see the FA having the spine to crack down in that way to be honest as doing so would probably ruin a game where its highly competitive - agree it would have the desired effect though if they did
